Lunging Save of the Year on Leafs is highlight of comeback season for Bruins netminder

No matter how many times you see it, at regular speed or slowed to frame by frame, you still expect the puck to hit the back of the net.

Instead, it goes to die in the glove of Boston Bruins goalie Tim Thomas.

Incredibly. Unbelievably. Impossibly.

There is no NHL award for Save of the Year, a subjective thing where beauty is in the eye of the partisan beholder. Canadiens fans, for instance, will argue that Carey Price has legitimate claim with a stunning theft on Dec. 4 of Carolina’s Chad LaRose.

But there’s also context. The save made by the Bruins’ Thomas on the Maple Leafs’ Francois Beauchemin in Toronto on Dec. 4 came in overtime with the game literally on the line -a diving, body-extended, trapper-yawning, let’s-keep-playing lunge.

In many places, the stop has become known as The Save. Pretty special when a play becomes a proper noun.
